As a lot has been happening recently in regards to Brexit, we thought it was about time we gave you some updates regarding the potential impact it may have on our sector.
The Prime Minister and her cabinet have agreed upon a series of measures as part of the final stage of Brexit negotiations. This includes a promise to help support students who wish to gain experience by studying abroad after we leave the EU. There will also be the continued mutual recognition of professional qualifications, allowing people to more easily take up employment opportunities in other countries, and continued commitment to EU funded programmes. UCAS itself has reassured students planning to study abroad that the UK is committed to continuing full participation in the Erasmus+ programme until the end of 2020.
The BBC reports that Australia has now overtaken the UK as the world's second biggest destination for international students. Headlines suggesting that Brexit might increase levels of hate crime do nothing to help the UK preserve its status as a welcoming place for people to move for study and work. The government is to allow visa-free travel for EU citizens coming to study in the UK post-Brexit. So far there is a commitment that these students will continue to pay the same fees as UK students in the 2019/20 academic year. However it is less clear if this will change in the years after this.
